Wood Textures Paper with Happy Birthday Thinlits 65th Birthday Card

Who is your hardest person to make a card for?? 
For me it is my Dad. It was his Birthday last week and it was a rather significant number so I wanted to show case that by using the Large Number Framelits long with the Wood Textures paper Stack that is perfect for masculine cards as well as just about any other type as well!


I started by using the Wood Textures Paper Stack. Next I cut the 65 and banner from the large Number Framelits in Island Indigo card stock and 2 Happy Birthday Thinlits in Tranquil Tide card stock as both the word are connected and you need to trim them apart on each piece to have them looking right. Using the Number of Years Stamp Set I stamped the "TH" in Tranquil Tide ink and the frame in Island Indigo ink. I arranged all these pieces on a piece of Vellum so they stood out from the busy background but you you can still see it as well. I adhered the vellum to the Wood Textures paper placing adhesive under all the numbers and words so it is not visible. To finish the card I matted the card from on some Early Espresso card stock and then onto a Crumb Cake card base.

Peace on Earth Carols of Christmas with Painted Autumn Christmas Card

I am loving the versatility of the Carols of Christmas Stamp set  I have managed to make Christmas card in various styles all from one set. I have kept this card simple using mainly Green - Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist and Silver both embossing and Glimmer paper and well as a sneak peek at the Painted Harvest Paper which will be available September 1st.


To start the card I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and using the big Shot cut out the frame using the Card Front Builder Framelits, while I had the set and Big Shot our I also cut the trees in Vellum and Silver Glimmer paper. I am really loving the NEW Painted Autumn Paper, which isn't Christmas themed but this works perfectly so I cut it slightly smaller thanks the framed piece. Next I silver heat embossed the sentiment from the Carols of Christmas stamp set as well as stamping the holly leaves using the Stampin Write markers and cutting them once again using the framelits and Big Shot. To assemble that card I attached the trees next to sentiment, layered these pieces on Lemon Lime Twist and stock and a Garden Green card base - these are the colours in the paper we used. I added the Holly as a finishing touch. to the card.

Paint Play Anniversary Card - GSF Blog Hop

Over at Global Stamping Friends we are having a Special Anniversary Blog Hop. It is not very often that I give an anniversary card but it is very special time no matter what type it is. Today's card I have made a generic anniversary card ready for the next anniversary that comes up. I have used the Paint Play stamp set from Stampin' Up! which is quickly becoming a firm favourite of mine.



This whole card is stamped!!! I know it would have been easier grabbing a piece of our beautiful Designer Series Paper but I do love creating my own unique stamped background and I have used the colours pictured below to create the background with the Paint Play stamped set. I have layered a few of the images to give a more finished look like the roses in Powder Pink and Rose Red inks and the daisies in Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight inks. I made sure to add some of the small leaves to roses in Wild Wasabi ink from the stamp set.

The sentiment was created using the Happy from Paint Play in Perfect Plum stamp set in and Anniversary from the Banners for You stamp set in Rose Red ink. This was punched out using the upcoming Everyday Label Punch available from September 1st. I stamped more of the smaller images to fill the punched shape and added a strip of Rose Red card stock to the back to make it stand out from the background. Now everything is looking really busy right? Well I simply added a strip of vellum adhered under the sentiment to break up the background and give some subtle white space while still seeing the stamped background. For that finishing touch I added a scattering of silver Metallic Enamel Shapes.

My Favourite Stampin Up! In Colour SDBH Blog Hop

Today I am participating in the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop where we are showcasing our favourite Stampin' Up! In colours and I really can't choose one but I can choose a family of them which are the 2017-2019 In Colours. 





I finally caved and bought the Beautiful Bouquet bundle in the Annual Catalogue and thought it would work perfectly with all the 2017-2019 In Colours and the Wood Textured Paper Stack.

I stamped the stem in Tranquil Tide and the Flowers in Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, and Lemon Lime Twist inks. Using the Big Shot is Die Cut the bouquet wrap and bow using the co ordinating Bouquet Bunch Framelits in Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink card stock. This wood printed piece was matted on Berry Burst card stock and Lemon Lime Twist card stock. The Fresh Fig card base is embossed using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder. I added some of our pearls as a finishing touch.

Veramark Resist Carols of Christmas Card

I am trying a new to me technique today with the Stampin' Up! new but old (it has returned) Glossy Card Stock and the technique is Versamark Resist with this month's Pre Release Carols of Christmas Bundle.


I started with the technique and it really is so easy to do. I took my cut down piece of Glossy card stock and it stamped with Versamark ink using the Carols Of Christmas Stamp set. I let it dry or in my case being impatient helped it along wth our Heat Tool. I then used our Sponge Brayers to create an Ombre background using Night of Navy, Island Indigo and Marina Mist inks. and the Versamark ink magically resists the ink - No embossing or speciality papers needed.
You can see how I used the Sponge brayers in the Video below


To create the rest of the card I used the Card Front Builder Framelits to create the two types of Christmas Trees in Vellum, Silver Foil and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I also used the Moon and Star thinlit at the top of the glossy piece and with a scrap of the Glimmer paper and kept all the cut out piece and added them to the top of the card as well as adding another piece of the Glimmer paper under the cut outs. The trees were added to the bottom of the Glossy card stock creating a scene. The card front was finally adhered to a Night Of Navy card base to complete the card.

I am teaching a class using the Carols of Christmas Bundle this Sunday August 20th 1pm at my house in Narara NSW.

Paint Play with Petal Garden Paper Birthday Card

I have finally cracked open my Petal Garden Paper Stack from Stampin' Up! and it is just stunning. I have paired it wth the Paint Play stamp set which is one that I over looked my first 100 looks through the Annual Catalogue but now have purchased using Hostess Rewards. I also have a Sneak Peek for you of a NEW Punch that is available next Month in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. 


I had the very hard task of choosing a piece of the Petal Garden Paper, as well a second piece coordinating piece. I stamped the sentiment from Paint Play I love the paint brush look, in Rich Razzleberry and Pool Party ink on to other side of the flower paper I punch it out using the soon to release Everyday Label Punch. I added some extra stamping to the label using the buds also from the Paint Play stamps in Sweet Sugarplum ink. I added this onto the coordinating piece of Petal Garden Paper. I placed the card front on a Pool Party card stock matt onto a Rich Razzleberry card base. I added a few pearls for a finishing touch to the card.

Deck the Halls - Carols Of Christmas Bundle Card

I really love the tradional Christmas colours of red and green, but my christmas tree is not traditional and I love it just as much. I used my favourite decorations from my tree as inspiration for this card along its Stampin' Up! carols Of Christmas bundle that is available a month ahead of the holiday Catalogue next month.


This card came together really easily. I started by stamping the decorations across the top of the card and the sentiment from the Carols Of Christmas stamp set in Soft Suede ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. I then stamped a number of ornaments onto scraps of Very Vanilla card stock in Powder Pink, Pool Party and Sweet Sugarplum ink. Using the Big Shot and the Card Front Builder Thinlits I cut all the coloured ornaments and attached them to the card using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I matted the card front with Sweet Sugarplum card stock and a Pool Party card base. 

I am teaching a class using this set next Sunday August 20th 1pm at my house in Narara NSW.
Please contact me for further details.

Here is a video showing all the pieces from the Carols of Christmas Bundle

Just Add Text with a Whole Lot of Lovely Paper Card

I was in need of some therapy yesterday afternoon so I kept it simple and grabbed some the beautiful Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper and settled on using the Whole Lot Of Lovely set of papers. These Oranges with the blossoms just jumped out at me so I made sure I had a complete image in the piece I used and off we went.


I started by consulting the colour palette for these papers and luckily they are right on the pack and I settled on the main three in this piece of paper, Pool Party for the card base and Crushed Curry and Tangering Tango as accents. I searched my scraps of card stock in the two accent colours. Layered them with the trimmed piece of paper. I created the multi coloured sentiment from the Just Add Text stamp set by using the brush end of our Stampin' Write Markers to indivially colour each line and huff on it to hydrate the drying colours and stamping onto Whisper White card stock. I then cut out the sentiment and a larger Vellum layer using the Ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits in the Big Shot adhering they layers together and then to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Then finishing the card using Enamel Shapes in the three colours Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango.

Peace on Earth Carols Of Christmas with Striped Treat Bags Card

The Stampin' Up! gold foiled Striped Treat bags are so luxurious and special and make anything you put in them that bit extra special. Today I cut one up to used a layer on my card.


I started this card by cutting up a treat bag and using the front portion cut to slightly smaller than a card base. In the Big Shot I created a border on the bag layer using the border Thinlit from the Card Front Builder Thinlits. Also using the Big Shot I cut some Always Artichoke card stock for the trees and Soft Suede card stock for the deer which had also been stamped in the same ink using the same Thinlits.  I stamped the Peace on Earth sentiment in Cherry Cobblerink onto Vellum and cut it and a larger square using the Stitched Shaped Framelits one again in the Big Shot, adhering them using tiny dabs of liquid glue behind the letters. I using Stampin' Dimensionals to where the single tree and deer to the card. I then adhered this Whole piece to a Thick Whisper White card base.

Here is a video showing all the pieces from the Carols of Christmas Bundle

Crafting Forever with Pick a Pattern Paper Z Fold Card

Today I am showcasing a Kids Card for the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. My eldest son recently turned 13 and this is a difficult age to make a card for especially boys. My son loves Art and drawing and that was the what I based his card one.


To make this card I started with the card base of Thick Whisper White which I made into a Z Fold card and added an extra flap on the back to allow it to stand up. I made a mix with my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry Reinker on my Silicone Craft Sheet mixed thoroughly and added a drop of Sahara Sand which I roughly mixed to give a grunge look and added to the card using the Pattern Party Decorative Mask brick design. While the paste was drying I chose the art design paper from the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper and added it to the front flap of the card  along with a thin strip of Basic Black card stock to define the panel. I stamped the pens from the Crafting Forever stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink onto vellum to form the base for the Emerald Envy card stock 13 which I cut using the Large Number Framelits in the Big Shot and attached over the Brick paste to finish the card.

Please also have look at all the other fantastic Kids Cards from the other Blog Hop Participants
